Thank you for your message and returning the milestone deposit on my project. I do know that life happens sometimes, I am a writer too with a family but you will need to find a way to get your messages even if you have to log into Freelancer every day because keeping your clients informed about what is going on is what is going to make you an excellent freelancer.
If you would like to finish the story I still want to buy it for the agreed rate. So please let me know how long it will take for you to finish the project so that I know when to expect it. Then you can invoice me for the amount through the Freelancer site and I will pay it. But if you have any delays with the story this time please find a way to get in touch with me. I have uploaded a file below for you to check out some new details.
